[Very Real] ZeniMax sets its VR litigating sights on Samsung

The tale of ZeniMax vs. The World of VR is developing into a modern-day saga of Homeric proportions with each new filing. Although Oculus/Facebook was found innocent of ZeniMax's previous accusations, it did end up having to cough up around $500 million as a result of NDA violations, copyright infringements, and for lying about a few things. Even so, it seemed as if the general dance was winding down and all the monsters short of the inevitable appeals had been slain. But the Hydra's heads are many, and ZeniMax is back with a new target: Samsung.

For $689.99, you can have the unlocked international GS8 (G950F). That's about $100 cheaper than most retailers.

You can now pre-order the Samsung Chromebook Pro on Amazon

Samsung announced a pair of Chromebooks back at CES 2017, the Chromebook Plus and Chromebook Pro. The former is powered by a custom ARM-based OP1 processor, while the latter is equipped with an Intel Core M3 6Y30 chip. The Plus was released back in February, but the Pro was delayed - presumably to fix issues with the Android app compatibility.

Verizon Galaxy S8 and S8+ are getting their red tint-fixing display calibration updates

The Galaxy S8 has had a relatively trouble-free launch thus far, with the one real quality issue being with displays. Some units are coming from the factory with a red tint on their displays, worsening the incredible experience that the AMOLED Infinity Display should bring. This fix (which basically allows for further calibration) first began rolling out in Korea near the end of April, but it's since hit AT&T and T-Mobile devices. Verizon is the latest US carrier to roll it out.

The Samsung Galaxy J3 2017 unceremoniously arrives at AT&T for $179.99

Last year's Samsung Galaxy J3 was a decent little budget phone. It had a 5" 720x1280 Super AMOLED display, an Exynos 3475 processor, and 1.5GB of RAM. Now the J3's successor, named the Galaxy J3 2017 (nice branding), has appeared for sale at AT&T with seemingly no formal announcement or fanfare.

Samsung's new Tizen OS phone looks like something from 2011

When Samsung first started developing its own operating system, named Tizen, many thought the company would be positioning it as an Android competitor at some point. That hasn't really happened, with only a handful of phones in emerging markets (plus some TVs and watches) actually running it. Samsung today revealed the 'Samsung Z4,' and it's a pretty good representation of the platform as a whole.

[Update: Official] T-Mobile to offer 'buy one, get one' deal on Galaxy S8 and S8+ starting tomorrow (May 12th)

The Galaxy S8 only just launched, but a post on Reddit outs T-Mobile's plan to offer a solid buy one, get one (BOGO) deal on the GS8 and GS8+ starting tomorrow. As with all carrier deals, there are plenty of little catches. Still, you can get a (mostly) free phone.

[Yo Dawg] Samsung made an Android app to transfer Tizen apps from an Android phone to a Tizen phone

I won't blame you if you're confused by the title of this post. I am too and I just wrote it. Samsung just released an app to the Play Store that's called "Tizen App Share." The name Tizen should first raise your eyebrow, because that's Samsung's other operating system, the one it famously runs on its popular Gear smartwatches, but also the one it is developing quasi-silently as a full-blown smartphone OS. The latter part hasn't been very popular, but then again Samsung hasn't put its complete marketing juggernaut weight behind it so it's understandably low key.

So when you read Tizen App Share, you might think it's a new utility to share apps between two Gear watches or between phones and Gear watches or something of the sorts...
